Ms. Hilda Seaview - Gorgeous Queen & Contest Judge
I'm Hilda Seaview, Miss District of Colombia. Now, say it out loud with me, "Guurrrlll - You better watch out, cause one day Hilda Seaview." Don't worry, you're not the first to have to repeat that sentence a couple of times. As I like to say, its better than my maiden name - Hilda Zurtu. I am fresh off the pageant circuit, and what a blast. All those lights, pretty men, fabulous friends, Queens, and contestants, and of course my fabulous performances...
Zack Rosen - DJ
In addition to being one of Refinery 29's official "Most Swoonworthy DJs" in DC, out Jewish DJ Zack Rosen is best known for helming TheNewGay.net and its Black Cat flagship party, Homo/Sonic.
